Erin & Paul’s Romantic E-session ‘Round Downtown Charleston


downtown charleston engagement session

Erin and Paul first met on MySpace back when it was, you know, all the rage. Since their wedding next year will take place in downtown Charleston, they thought of exploring the area for their e-session. Along with Mell Bell of Richard Bell Photography, they ventured on a photo walk about a mile away from the reception site and found interesting, little-known spots around the area, which resulted in some very unique and creative photos! Please enjoy. 🙂

Ready to meet the sweet couple? Lovely Erin’s here to tell us more about the two of them:

My name is Erin Gray, I’m a massage therapist and work for Massage Envy for almost 5 years now. My fiancé is Paul Mitchell. He is an Environmental Health Manager and works for SCDHEC (South Carolina Department of Health an Environmental Control). He works in the rabies department. Whenever there is an animal bite reported, He has to go to the victim’s house to observe the animal or person bit to see if they need to be vaccinated or quarantined.. Pretty neat job.

Paul and I like to go to the movies, ride our bikes together, travel, road trips, dancing — we just started taking salsa and bachata dance lessons a couple months ago and really enjoy it! We are going to incorporate this in our music for the reception.

Paul and I started dating about 5 years ago next month. We actually met on MySpace when it was popular lol and knew a mutual friend, but somehow we never met before. We went on our first date and have been together ever since. We complement each other really well. He is very outgoing, people person. And I’m more shy and observant but open up to people once I get to know them. We balance each other out and I like that. 🙂

Erin shares how their e-session reflects who they are as a couple:

Our session is significant to us as a couple because we are having our ceremony and reception in downtown Charleston also. We wanted something different and not so normal. Felt like it was more modern than average engagement photos. Our photographer Mell made the experience so much fun! We had a go with the flow attitude towards the shoot and followed her direction every step of the way.
